Our next toy auction on 18th May is a big one for Star Wars fans. We have almost 200 Star Wars lots, with items for every type of collector. We’ve picked a couple of interesting lots for a closer look:
This Hasbro Star Wars Unleashed figure is one of the modern Star Wars toys that is harder to find. This Darth Vader features a removable helmet to reveal Anakin Skywalker underneath. (Lot 399)
Check out this scarce Triang James Bond Underwater Battle game, featured in our next toy auction on May 18th!
Lot 330, estimate £140-£180
Featured in our toy auction on May 18th we have a fantastic selection of vintage Barbie dolls and outfits!
In May, the force will be with us here at Aston’s Auctioneers! Our May 18th toy auction includes a huge Star Wars and sci-fi collection.
A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away (well, 1977 in the USA…) the first Star Wars film was released to become the highest grossing film of the time. The Kenner toy line was released shortly afterwards and was a huge hit with fans, many of whom are still collecting Star Wars toys today.
After sorting through a fantastic ex-shop stock collection, we have found some wonderful items that are guaranteed to interest any lover of the fashion doll.
Pippa the pocket sized doll was released by Palitoy during the 70's and 80's and marketed using the slogan "the pocket money fashion doll that puts fashion in your pocket". With various friends, fashions and accessories, Pippa proved to be very popular and more affordable than her main competitors, Barbie and Sindy due to her small stature.
We are delighted to be auctioning several of Pippas fantastic fashions, which are very rare to find in the original packaging, never mind the original trade box!
Does anybody have any more information about these Timpo Puzzle Cubes featured in our next toy sale...? The six pictures which can be created include a ship, a bus and a locomotive. Whilst we often sell puzzle cubes in our mixed lots of games, this is the first Timpo example I have seen.
